Knitting needles come in all kinds of sizes, from thin needles almost the size of a toothpick to super large needles that can make the chunkiest of projects. But have you ever been in a situation where you didn’t know what your knitting needle size was? In this video, knitting designer Jen Lucas explains knitting needle conversions and shows you just how easy it is to figure out what the US Size or metric size of your knitting needles.
Jen shows a knitting needle conversion chart and discusses how you use it to determine your needle size. She also recommends getting yourself a needle gauge so that you can figure out what size your needle is if the information isn’t listed on the label itself. She notes that patterns won’t always list both the US and metric sizes for knitting needles, so it’s important to know your knitting needle conversions so you have the right needle for your project.
